Question about Kenmore 23313 Whispertone Bagged Canister Vacuum
I am trying to remove and replace the base on my vacuum.There are four screws. I have removed two of them. The oter two are under the retractable cord button.I need to know how to get at those.thank-you
Most of these you have to take off the cover on the back end where the cover retrack button is. Usually it has a catch, 2 on each side, use a screw driver, pry up near each corner to release it, then you can get to the cover over the moter and cord reel. Remove the 2 screw and put up and out.

The front two screws are located under the front cover hinges. These screws can be accessed by opening the front cover as you would if you were changing the bag then continue to rotating the front cover and it will come off. The two rear screws are located under the cord rewind foot pedal. There are four plastic tabs holding the four pedal hinges in place. These tabs can just barly be seen by prying the pedal backward away from the rear cover. All four tabs must be pressed forward (I did it one at a time) then rotate the pedal up and forward until the hinges pop out of their sockets. It's tricky and frustrating but it can be done.

I have a Kenmore 116.26512690, and I can't see a way to remove the cord release, so that I can get to the two screws beneath it, so I can get to the cord reel.

On some kenmore canister vacs ( like mine ) the cover releases by pressing on the hinge flaps to release them and lifting up.
